If someone brings faith in God to your life, as the Reverend Jeremiah Wright did for Barack Obama, do you deny that person as Judas did Jesus or do you stand by the positive benefits that person has had on your life and reject the other despicable acts they may have committed?

When your politicians, your government, your corporations, your job and your wealth have abandoned you - what else is their to cling if not your faith and family?

If Barack Obama who pulled himself and others up by his own bootstraps may be labeled "elitist" then the Clintons who liquidated their blind trust of nearly $50 million amassed during their years in public office might similarly be labeled - "crooks."

The Clintons would have us believe that Hillary and Bill have been thoroughly vetted. If that were true, then why don't we have answers for:

FOREIGN: How will Hillary know whether Bill's advice serves U.S. interests or the interests of his Russian, Chinese, Indian, Kazakhstan, Dubai, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman or Brunei clients?

MONEY: Do the Clinton Foundation, Clinton Library, Clinton campaign and Clintons tax records show a proper accounting for the sources and uses of funds?

PARDONS: Will Hillary "reject" contributions or compensation from persons she pardons unlike her husband Bill who accepted contributions from Marc Rich, partner of Viktor Bout (the merchant of death), and her brother Hugh Rodham who accepted compensation from drug lords who were pardoned by Bill?

Hillary Clinton says her economic policies will restore the economic policies of her husband's administration. However as the sub prime housing loans and dot com investment bubbles were created and pandered during her husband's administration, Hillary and her husband ignored Alan Greenspan's warnings of the irrational exuberance in these markets and both supported China's entry into the World Trade Organization without any conditions such as protecting the environment or labor and property rights to levels that are comparable to western standards.

The U.S. government surplus (generated by taxes raised from the housing and investment bubbles) evaporated once the housing and investment bubbles burst.

Furthermore, China today is not only a leading contributor to environmental pollution and global warming (thank you very much Mr. Nobel Laureate, Al Gore), it's also pushing up oil and other commodity prices, taking our jobs and stealing our intellectual property.

Like the Roaring Twenties decade that preceded the Great Depression, the Irrational Nineties that preceded our current decade were both golden ages for technology, scandal-plagued politicians, corporate greed, and unrestrained personal debt and speculation.

As the global economy teeters on the brink of economic meltdown not unlike the Great Depression, America doesn't need finger pointing and fear mongering, America needs a president whose economic policies are based on confidence, unity and reason. America needs Barack Obama.

When political and military judgment mattered most to U.S. military personnel and the American people, John McCain and Hillary Clinton failed as U.S. Senators to demonstrate any commander-in-chief qualities when without competent questioning, they both accepted the faulty intelligence used to justify the Iraq war and misjudged the Bush administration's competencies to lead the war.

Barack Obama on the other hand demonstrated his superior judgment and commander-in-chief qualities when he took an unpopular position and cautioned that without clear rationale an invasion of Iraq would encourage the worst impulses of the Arab world and strengthen Al Qaeda's recruitment.

Now, John McCain advocates maintaining U.S. troops in Iraq indefinitely which does little to incentivize the Iraqi government to deliver the political reforms needed to promote civil unity whereas Barack Obama's threat to withdraw U.S. troops does more to incentivize the Iraqi government to deliver the necessary reforms.

As the threat of global terrorism persists, neither John McCain or Hillary Clinton have demonstrated any understanding of the complexities of building and maintaining global alliances to confront this common enemy. America needs a president with demonstrated commander in chief qualities, leadership and judgment. America needs Barack Obama.

If experience, wisdom and judgment may be relied upon to judge a presidential candidate's abilities to solve problems, then let's look at the records of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

2007 - While Barack Obama promoted a restoration of balance between work and wealth in the Senate and criticized special interests for distorting U.S. tax codes, Hillary Clinton and her husband liquidated their blind trust of the nearly $50 million amassed during their years in public office.

2002 - While Barack cautioned that without clear rationale an invasion of Iraq would encourage the worst impulses of the Arab world and strengthen the recruitment arm of Al Qaeda, Hillary told Larry King she didn't regret her vote on the Iraq war resolution because like the Bush administration, the Clinton administration viewed Saddam Hussein as a threat to the international community.

1999 - While Barack secured bipartisan support for health-care reform and passage of low-income tax credits and child care subsidies in the Illinois legislature, Hillary supported her husband's Iraq "regime change" policy in order to divert public attention from the president's marital, legal and ethical infidelities.

1989 - While Barack Obama served as the Harvard Law Review's first black president, Hillary Clinton then wife of the Arkansas governor received payments from a law firm that was doing the state's business and received board of director payments from Wal-Mart where she remained silent about Wal-Mart's anti-labor union practices.

1979 - While Barack Obama was actively involved in the South African divestment movement to end apartheid, Hillary reaped profits of almost 10,000% in the futures markets and left taxpayers with her real-estate losses in the Savings & Loan bailout.

While the public benefited from Barack Obama's public accomplishments, it was only Clintons who benefited from their personal achievements.

For too long fear, division and rancor have been used as instruments to maintain power and position in Washington.

Why are the Clintons' traditional adversaries Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity now embracing Hillary Clinton as the Democratic Party's nominee? Because both the Clintons and John McCain are willing sparring partners in the fear mongering arena, whereas Barack Obama's means of governing through confidence, unity and reason threatens the wealth, power and position of these fear mongers.

It's refreshingly nice to see the better angels of America's character prevailing as voters reject the racial, religious and ethnic slurs being spewed by the divisive surrogates of the Clintons, Limbaugh and Hannity.

Voters in Pennsylvania now have an opportunity to change the direction of America's policies, economy and foreign relations for the better by voting for Barack Obama and rejecting the fear mongers.

Wow, can't wait to see Hillary the Queen of Double Standards! She can sling all the mud she wants but no one else can or she'll cry foul. She can complain all she wants about debates but no one else can (at least she didn't get the first question). She can misspeak all she wants when she's exhausted but no one else can misspeak. She is so divisive and conniving and fully feels she is entitled to the presidency so will do anything...say anything...to get elected. She apparently is opposed to almost everything Bill did during his presidency but yet cites it as part of her vast experience.

As an Independent i have no qualms in saying that if she steals the nomination i would sooner vote for Mickey Mouse.

The democratic party is for rejects,the overeducated, lazy , and mentally mamed. McCain will win the presidency, and you can keep your bumperstickers on for four more years of right of center politics. The machine is in place if you have the williness to look at it. The Hillary and Obma thing is to pasivate the cry of the blus collar idiots in this country. The people that really run this country are not yet ready to hand over the reins of De-mock-race-cee. Idiots are everywhere and growing, most people don't have the itelligence of truth to be able to elect a president.

John McCain in presidency is just another 4 years of the Bush Administration... even when he speaks he sounds like Bush speaking.

Barack Obama... sure, his ideas sound good, but, he can never stand stong and support them and get others to believe in them when he cowers every time his back is against a wall.

Hillary Clinton, a strong woman who believes in her causes... who won't back down... and, who has many of the same ideas of Obama, but at times, with a different means of making them work.

It's time for a change, Obama has that right, that's for sure... but change we can believe in starts one place... in the hands of a woman!!!

I'll be sure to be at Liberty High School come Sunday showing my support.

Democrats are idiots...lol... WOW... and what do you call those Republicans who make such a statement and can't spell correctly? Funny, if you listened to McCain speak before he became the presumptive candidate, you would have heard a lot of crying the BLUES from him as well... it's called politics... and who is crying now? Must be a McCain follower.
